Over the years, Hamilton & Inches' silversmiths have been commissioned to make some spectacular pieces of silver. Past commissions have included a centrepiece and candlesticks used at Bute House, the residence of the First Minister of Scotland; a silver gilt crown for the Lord Lyon King of Arms, made to mark Her Majesty's Golden Jubilee; and the Triple Crown Trophy commissioned by the Royal Bank of Scotland in 2006. The commissioning process takes a minimum of three months and involves a number of key stages: discussion of outline design concept and budget, presentation of initial rough sketches, preparation of full design drawings, production of model if required. Following final client approval, production in our workshop in Edinburgh commences. For the customer, one of the most exciting parts of the process is visiting the workshops to see the project coming to life before their eyes. Commissioning allows you to become part of the whole design process and to appreciate the skill of our craftsmen as your piece progresess.
